Bedfordshire Police is teaming up with a Luton community radio station and social enterprise for a new monthly radio show.
The Public and the Police will air on the first Tuesday of every month on Luton Urban Radio's (LUR’s) Tuesday evening dedication show from 8pm to 9pm.
It will cover hard hitting policing topics such as stop and search, police accountability, recruitment and careers in policing, a diverse workforce as well as the landmark police race action plan
The first episode on Tuesday 6 December will focus on efforts across the county to tackle male violence against women and girls.
The radio show will be hosted by Att10tive Youth Ambassador Mehtaab Rehman.
Bedfordshire Police Acting Chief Constable Trevor Rodenhurst said: “We know we must be bold and creative in the ways we speak to our different communities across Bedfordshire and explain the important work we do.
“I would like to thank Att10tive and Luton Urban Radio for their collaboration with us on this new radio show. I hope listeners find this series useful and informative."
Montell Neufville, managing director at Att10tive, added. "There are lots of views on policing and many people have questions about policing and what they should and shouldn't do.
“This radio show will help to break down barriers and demystify what police do and how they work.
“I always find these opportunities are a great way of building trust and confidence between the police and all our communities.”
